    This is NOT a change in my approach to the DIHALSers. I'm just struggling (still), and as I am sure most of us (PALS) are, with some of the persistent posters.

    Why is it they are happy if we would agree with their self-diagnosis or their disagreement with at least one board certified doctor, but think we are bitter, nasty folks if we think they have anxiety issues....

    Hi Rob,
    Hope you are feeling a little bit better today. I read your post on the constipation. We see people in extreme pain come into ER with it. It's a miserable thing for sure. Hope some of the suggestions are helping you a bit. Just want you to know I think of you and othe other PALS/CALS on here often. If I can do anything ever to help you or your famiy please let me know. You are in my prayers. Kim

    Hi Rob,
    Thinking of you. My son and I did the ice bucket challenge yesterday. Several family members and friends are doing it in honor of dad. Praying for you. Kim

    Hi Rob,
    Hope things are going ok with you and your family. I had a nice visit with my dad in Dallas. I actually thought he looked better then he did when we saw him at Christmas. But, he was just getting over a cold then as well. He hasn't really progressed too much since then. We were able to take him out to eat 3x's while I was there and then my boys were there for 3 days after me. They took him out to see a movie and he went over to my brother's house and relaxed by his pool while the boys swam and they all had pizza. Dad is hoping to get a van soon through the VA. It is so hard to transfer him now without it. Take care, Kim

    Hi Rob,
    Just checking in with you. How are things going? I've been working quite a bit and starting to get a little burnt out. But, the money will help out when I go visit dad on June 9th in Dallas. My daughter and I are taking a train out of St. Louis. We will be making a decision real soon as to rather we will be flying home or returning by train. It's a two hour drive from our home to St. Louis. How are you tolerating the Riluzole? Take care, Kim

    Hi Rob,
    Please keep me posted on how you are doing with the Riluzole. Dad is debating as to get back on it or not. Hope you have a nice weekend. Kim
